An award-winning designer, published author, versatile artist, spiritual channel, not to mention ordained minister, Rosanne’s ancestral heritage melds Blackfoot, Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet), and Mi’kmaq descent, as well as French Canadian and Italian.

She writes under the pen name Marie Dion.
This creative visionary brings 30+ years of design expertise to the table, as well as her unique mixed blood, Native spiritual ancestry.
Rosanne’s ancestral heritage melds Mi’kmaq, Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet), Blackfoot descent, as well as of French Canadian and Italian. She bridges cultures and artistic mediums as well as the tangible and intangible.
When Rosanne’s ancestors called her to immerse herself in Native ceremonies after being raised a devout Catholic, she felt pulled in seemingly opposite directions by her heritage, requiring her to center, balance, and ground.
Navigating the seen and unseen worlds while living a “normal” life can be tricky. Bridging our spiritual life with the day-to-day can feel like we’re heading down a river on two canoes—one foot in each.
That is why Rosanne has created artwork, clothing and more to bridge seen and unseen worlds—like tools, touchstones, or totems that you can use for healing, peace, and staying connected to Spirit.
Across her diverse expressions, each piece is conceived in a spirit of compassion, respect, and balance, giving the item a distinctive healing aspect. People report feeling calmed, reverent, and transported when seeing and holding her work.
